    Question Sketchbook Spam

    Is there an issue with spam bots on the forums currently? My new sketchbook thread seems to be receiving post that have no context from users who've been registered to the site for a day. If you browse my sketchbook, you'll notice the following users may in fact be bots: Iamoreira0, Rezsdg4fsa, uutt8907.

    Because these forums are so well known, we are a prime candidate for
    spambots. They try to invade thick and fast everyday. It can take a
    while sometimes to clear them all out. Yours is one of the newer
    sketchbooks and was probably just in the right place at the wrong
    time.

    I will go take a look, don't forget to use the report function to
    let the staff know about a post you suspect to be spam.
    EDIT: I see you reported it after making this thread...
    well, now you know about the spam threat. Security
    improvements are currently underway.
